NAME ^

Win32::WMIC - Access to the MS Windows Management Instrumentation Utility!

VERSION ^

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS ^

WMIC extends WMI for operation from several command-line interfaces and through batch scripts. Understand?

Essentially, MS Windows captures a crap-load of information about the system, users, hadware, etc and now makes it available via the wmic command-line utility.
